Not long ago, I had the chance to photograph a stunning 56-year-old model. She was beautiful at whatever angle I shot and the sunny day just seemed to further accentuate her great figure. Nice gams, a solid rear-end, and great pair of headlights!
She appears to be a 1953 Dodge Coronet V-8 Wagon. I asked the owner for permission to take her picture when I saw her at the shop for two reasons. The first is I love old cars like this. I couldn't tell you anything about the mechanics of them, but they're fun to look at, listen to, and drive.
The second reason is I wanted to recreate one of my assignments from "back in the day" when I was taking photography classes. The portfolio I made out of my homework got destroyed, which made me sad. But now that I've picked up the hobby again, re-doing some of the work will be good practice.
When I did this in school, the pictures had to be in black and white. I didn't think it was fair to the candy apple red and chrome, so I only made one black and white. It does look good, though. See the full set of 1953 Dodge Coronet photos.
